Senator Mark Pryor’s press secretary emailed out a release Wednesday afternoon alleging that a crime was committed when Joe Francis, founder of “Girls Gone Wild,” claimed that he had bought an internship in Pryor’s office and would give it to the “Hottest Girl in America.”
“Our office does not sell, auction or donate internships,” spokesman Lisa Ackerman wrote. “We believe someone outside Senator Pryor’s office has broken the law by fraudulently impersonating a U.S. Senator, fraudulently attempting to sell a government position and using the Senate seal without authorization. We have asked the FBI to fully investigate who is perpetrating this fraud against the senator and the U.S. Senate.”
